The 832 – What Is It

June 5, 2012

What is the 832 EDI Transaction Set?

The EDI transaction set 832 is known as a sales catalog. The EDI 832 sales catalog transaction is frequently exchanged between manufacturers and retailers.

Manufacturers rely on EDI 832 sales catalogs to send vital product information to retailers with whom they do business. The 832 document conveys product information and prices.

In order to expedite the EDI 832 sales catalog documents, you can integrate the receipt and processing of 832 documents right into your purchasing software. Integrating the flow of information from an 832 catalog into a company’s purchasing or ERP system is easily handled using EDI/HQ Software.

There may be companies which still conduct business by accepting paper or faxed orders. However, the need to streamline processes, reduce costly errors, and respond to partners promptly, are speeding the adoption of electronic business processes and communication.
